    On Saturday at Key Biscayne, Miami, Florida, in the 3rd round of the 2015 Miami Open, the 2015 champion at Kuala Lumpur (and 2014 US Open finalist), 24 year old 4th seeded #5 (and former #1) Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark (residence: Monte Carlo, Monaco), defeated the 2013 Brussels champ, 29 year old #51 (career high: #16) Kaia Kanepi from Haapsalu, Estonia, 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 (photo shown).

    Caro said: "It was windy out there today and I think the stats will show that, because there were a lot of unforced errors. It was tough to get a rhythm out there. Tough with the ball toss because the ball was flying everywhere." WTA story

    In the 4th round on Monday, Caroline will play the 2015 champ at Auckland, 34 year old 16th seeded #17 (and former #1) Venus Williams from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

    Venus leads Caroline 6-0 in career matches. Their most recent meeting was in January of this year on a Plexicushion hardcourt in the final at Auckland, when Venus defeated Caro 2-6, 6-3, 6-3.

    Also on Saturday at Key Biscayne, the 2015 champion at Antwerp (and the 2014 champ at Charleston & Sofia), 27 year old 9th seeded #10 (career high: #9) Andrea Petkovic from Darmstadt, Germany, defeated 21 year old #63 (career high: #37) Kristina Mladenovic of France (residence: Saint Pol sur Mer, SUI), 6-0, 6-2 (photo shown).

    In the 4th round on Monday, Andrea will play the 2010 Eastbourne champ, 26 year old 8th seeded #9 (career high: #9) Ekaterina Makarova from Moscow, Russia.

    Petko and Kate have met only once before, in 2010 on a hardcourt in the 2nd round at Istanbul, when Andrea defeated Ekaterina 7-6(5), 5-7, 6-3.

  Tennis History:

"The 700-year-old French game of tennis, traditionally as much a lady's as a man's game, was introduced to the U.S. in 1874 by a woman, Mary E. Outerbridge..."
See more from this Sept. 9, 1946, TIME Magazine cover story on women's tennis and 1946 Wimbledon and Forest Hills champ Pauline Betz now on the Tennis Articles page.

TIME Magazine, May 23, 1955:
    In her first column, the San Diego Union's new Women's Sports Editor Maureen ("Little Mo") Connolly, retired as the world's greatest lady tennis star at a ripe old 21, showed that sports punditry is as easy for her as smashing a tennis ball down an opponents throat.
    Lamented Little Mo in great pontifical style: "[On] the American scene today ... we're reducing sports to a cluster of numbers on a board ... We ... are expecting our champions to be stadium automatons, the human equivalents of the balls in a super pinball machine ... We're watching for the numbers to light up and forgetting the play."

    (September 19, 2014) Australian Open champion and former WTA #2 Li Na has retired from professional tennis due to knee problems that have troubled her intermittently for years. Na said: "After four knee surgeries and hundreds of shots injected into my knee weekly to alleviate swelling and pain, my body is begging me to stop the pounding. My previous three surgeries were on my right knee. My most recent knee surgery took place this July and was on my left knee. After a few weeks of post-surgery recovery, I tried to go through all the necessary steps to get back on the court. While I've come back from surgery in the past, this time it felt different. One of my goals was to recover as fast as I could in order to be ready for the first WTA tournament in my hometown of Wuhan. As hard as I tried to get back to being 100%, my body kept telling me that, at 32, I will not be able to compete at the top level ever again. The sport is just too competitive, too good, to not be 100%."
    Na finishes her career with 9 WTA singles titles, a 503-188 career singles match record, and $16,709,074 in prize money. Open Letter from Li Na Announcing her Retirement - Li Na at Facebook

    Marion said: "That was actually the last match of my career. Sorry. It's time for me to retire and call it a career. I feel it's time for me to walk away actually...
    "My body just can't do it anymore. I've already been through a lot of injuries since the beginning of the year. I've been on the tour for so long, and I really pushed through and left it all during that Wimbledon. I really felt I gave all the energy I have left in my body. I made my dream a reality and it will stay with me forever, but now my body just can't cope with everything. I have pain everywhere after 45 minutes or an hour of play. I've been doing this for so long, and body-wise I just can't do it anymore."
